James Elmer Louis GRIDER was oldest of four minor children who were orphans. A man with the surname of DECK took James and his sister, Cindy. The other two siblings went to Wisconsin and were never heard from again. James was nine years old when his father died, and 17 years old when his mother died.

James was born 30 Apr 1835 at Adair Co., KY and he died 09 Oct 1909 at Ford Co., IL His father was Hamilton GRIDER and his mother was Sally BAILEY.

James married Martha Jane THURMAN on 22 Dec 1853 at Danville, Vermillion Co., IL. She was born 07 Dec 1837 at OH, and died 11 Dec Her father was Thomas THURMAN and her mother was Charity Ellen TAYLOR.

Is someone researching the DECK surname that is familiar with this story? I would love to learn the details about James when whe resided with the DECK family.
